Denton Contested Divorce Lawyer
Contested or Uncontested Divorce
In Texas, divorces are considered “no fault,” making it easy to obtain a divorce so long as one party feels that there is no hope of reconciliation. This means that, once a party has filed for a divorce, the other party can do little to prevent the divorce process from moving forward.
In an uncontested divorce, the spouses agree to divorce and agree to all terms of the dissolution, settling all matters of property, debt, spousal support, custody and child support. In an uncontested divorce, our firm will provide you a document called a “divorce worksheet” for you and your spouse to fill out indicating how you agree to divide your property, handle custody and child support. From this worksheet, we will draft all of the required documents and the parties can avoid courtroom hearings. Once the final orders have been executed by both you and your spouse, we can set a prove-up hearing with the court and guide you through that process. You will only need to go to court one time, where you will be asked a few questions required by law and the court will grant your divorce and sign the agreed decree. We will provide you and your spouse with a copy of all paperwork, including a certified copy of the final decree.
A contested divorce, on the other hand, means that the couple cannot agree to the terms of the divorce. In such cases, attorneys must litigate all of the contested issues before a judge or a jury in some cases. At Alexander & Associates, our divorce lawyers are prepared to aggressively represent your interest and strive to get you what you are entitled from your divorce litigation. Throughout the process we will keep you informed and provide you an honest evaluation of your case.
